” Rejoice with those who rejoice; mourn with those who mourn.” Romans 12:15
No fooling….MBC has a new clown ministry, and it needs you.
We started talking about a clown ministry a couple of years ago, but weren’t ready to take the leap of faith in size 47 shoes. But, after the Christian Ed carnival in October of 2011, it was obvious to us that God was ready for us to move forward.
The purpose of this ministry is solely to show God’s love to everyone and expect nothing back in return. We will be seeking out the lonely, sick, and those in need of a smile to keep them going…simply to love them where they are.
We plan to follow Jesus’ commands, John 13:34 “A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another.” In John 13:35 Jesus says, “By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.”
This ministry is not about kids in grease paint, in fact, it is not just for youth. The clown ministry was kicked off by the Youth Group, but is open to everyone in the church. We need you to consider joining our clown ministry team.
We will be visiting nursing homes, shut-ins, and performing a host of other activities.
